Make-Up Monday 8/13/12

What another wonderful week of Amusement park themed challenges we had this week.  I hope you guys are enjoying them as much as I am.  In case you missed any, here is a recap of all the fun challenges posted by our DT this past week:

On Tuesday Annette challenged us to use shades of blue papers to represent the water as well as to do some sort of technique on the page to also represent water. But there was a twist to her water ride themed challenge because that wasn't all.  She also challenged us with making sure the title word or words must include something to do with water (Water, Splash, Wet, etc)

On New Wednesday it was Michelle's turn to challenge us all.  And challenge us all she did.  She decided that we all needed a place to put our souvenirs that we bring home from those cool places we go and so she shared with us a tutorial she found on Split Coast Crafters.  It uses enveloped to make a hidden place to keep those things in.  Looking at her cute LO, I didn't realize that under her photo there was a "hidden pocket". But check it out...

Moving on to Thursday, Tamara challenged us all to hop on the Ferris Wheel and take a ride around that big ol' circle in the sky.  She challenged us all to do a layout using circles and top it off with bling (to represent the lights of the ferris wheel).  And to inspire us she created this great LO that is actually about a ferris wheel...

By the time Friday rolled around, you would have thought we would be too tired from all the wonderful challenges already, however Cassy gave us another awesome challenge and we all caught a second wind to keep on truckin'.  In her own word Cassy challenges us with this: "I want to see a large title on your page. Something that is large, unique, draws the viewers attention and jumps out at you. Embellish it up and make it proud."  Awesome right?

After catching our second wind from Cassy's challenge, we rolled into Saturday rearing to go.  And it's a good thing too because Annie challenged us to use those tickets we made on the second challenge of the month by using this Pagemap and those tickets we made for that challenge:

and here is Annie sample:

On Sunday, Jo found a really cool vintage postcard for us to use as inspiration.  However she does leave this challenge open a bit by saying we can pick a different postcard as inspiration if we so choose to do so.  I love the vintage Galveston Pier postcard though...

I hope that you all are able to take today to go back and get those missed challenges completed.  There really was a week full of amazing challenges and examples by our DT.
